I come to you on bended knees
Knowing you will hear my pleas
By your side is where I long to be
Oh, God,be mercilful to me

Your love I know will forever last
As you free me from my past
In your debt I'll always be
Oh, God, be merciful to me

Lord, I look up with pleading eyes
Toward Heaven, beyond the skies
Your face soon I hope to see
Oh, God, be merciful to me

Now my death, I know is nigh
Take me Lord, with you on high
There, with loved ones I will be
God has been merciful to me

Answer Me This

My life surpassed, fades long, yet fast
(Below the dirt, my coffin's cast)
Despite how deep, however vast
I'll dwell inside that vacant mass
It's only He that understands,
The One that gave me Poet's hands
So tell me please, if you can-
How from dust arose a Man?

The Godfather

I’m a man, just simply a man;
once a child with no other distinction.
I am neither your first son, nor last.

I cannot alter what God has planned, 
nor stop sun to shine, 
nor stop the rain he’s cast.

So, I seek a solution to the paradigm
of angst and joy of life,
of the person I should be now.

Though life’s full of mystery and of misery,
you were there to give me hope and dignity,
no wonder I always love to be with you.

But, when God decided...
we couldn’t say, “No!” 
You left me with his everlasting glory.

As time passes, I realize the greatness of 
love and joy on the day of my friend’s son,
I became like you, a loving godfather.

Lord, I've Been Hurting

Lord., I've Been Hurting!

This one thing I am
 most certain…
Lately I’ve been really hurtin’.

I trying to do right, but it 
turns out “wrong.”
Where, in life,
do I really belong?

So many people
 pass me by.
Sometimes, someone
may say;  “hi!”

I don’t know if this message is
 getting across?
I feel so confused and 
completely lost.

A message of “help” has my
 prayer and plea…
For God to reach out to me!

He reached down and
made me whole!
HIS love and compassion
 filled my soul!

Spending time with Jesus
 is time well spent!
It was for you and me that 
Jesus was sent!

A Nation in Need of God

With vile intensity hatred infiltrates the hearts of men, turning brother against brother, friend against friend, dividing our once great nation. Right is wrong; wrong is right. Confusion reigns as wisdom flounders and hatred's vitriolic verbiage tears down and destroys trust and unity. And all the while, Satan is dancing with glee on the ashes of our hope, and the soul of our nation weeps. O God, save us from ourselves! 2/2/17 Entered in John Hamilton's Upside Down World Contest Tied for 2nd place

Wish I was in a better place

Wish i was in a better place. To survive myself from this case. I know it is just a phase, till I get God's grace. I think I'm sounding ungrateful. It's just that sometimes it gets painful. I should thank God and stay faithful, 'cause graceful days are coming peaceful.

I gazed upon your face, oh Lord
And the fires of hell extinguished their sting and wept for mercy.

I heard your voice call me, oh Lord
And the army of heaven carried me away.

I felt your love touch me, oh Lord
And i knew i was home.

I am this Earth and Heaven above.
I have not forsaken you as you have not forsaken me.

They say to worship to get back into church
That all I need do is fall to my knees and repent
Then all this personal pain he will prevent
To kneel and pray to “The Soveriegn God”
Well, my knees are bruised and scabbed 
Where is this God of yours I ask
Guess I’m not really a fan of his work
As I walk through this existence 
Sufferring is all I see
War in the desert neverending
Children dying so young
Little boys and girls raped by the clergy
Destruction Hate Crimes against humanity
Where is this God of yours I ask
They say Christianity is the way 
Well, bullsh!t! That’s what I say.

the gatekeeper

twas the night,
forsaken to see,
another angel,
calls to he.

He who walks,
through desolate skies,
teaching young angels,
how to fly.

Blowing the wind,
beneath their wings,
keeping them aloft,
for everyone to see.

This is the man,
who controls all fate,
the one who lets,
people through his gates.

Why Hides the Sun His Face As In Defeat

Why hides the sun his face as in defeat?
The day is done and this ninth hour had come
As sorrows flood with tears that grace his feet
That faints the eye of such a tempest calm

Then stillness breaks the hanging Victor shouts
Man’s worst is done yet still may perish not
For God his best hath done that leaves no doubt 
Unblemished lamb in whom there is no spot

The grievous cross by which he suffered death
He welcomed with his open arms so wide
Forgave our sins, forever to forget 
And rent the veil that set a great divide

The finished sacrifice my gap did breach
What glorious grace is this by which I’m reached!

Partly clad
full moon
was taking a bath on hills.
Trees were waiting
for the curtains to rise.

Scented stars would make
giant scars on the clouds,
I would make peace with the sky.
Lids of human greed were laden
with golden dust, I was hoisting the skull.

Of a virgin god who did not
want to live for the blotched up creation.
The decline was obvious. Truth 
had refused to climb
on the sky-blue, salted peaks of springs.

Body had arrived,
mourners quietly wailing.
Gouged eyes could not decipher
the script on the halved pyramid.
Sun was sucking the clay.

The Left Hand of God

Memories of once the sun shined,
oiled and tanned we denied
the only living book and subtle nudges.
Nothing but truth in the grave
when too in love with everything
reached the top and found nothing
but the pain of a flame’s dedication
and an absolute conviction,
replays the familiar
screams and whispers them.
Strain a touch through the glare,
but they ain’t there.
No one left to save us
as we find common grace
included tears.

Inspired by the song ‘The Rapture’ by Puscifer

If Today Was Your Last

Author Dana Redricks 
May 5, 2019 

If today was your last day
what would you do 
Would you get your house 
in order and say goodbye 
to those you love 
Would you remember 
you to get ready for 
where you would spend 
God has made a way we
could be secure 
Most people have life
insurance but it
won't secure our souls 
Death doesn't discriminate 
it takes young and old
So if today was your last 
where would you go
Life is short we must be 
prepared to meet our 
maker when our time 
on earth is done

Turning from God

Exuberant with an abundance of new youth,
A heart so fresh, so full of light,
Grows dark and begins to write,
It sees through the lies it knows the truth.

Its soul loves God; with him it confides, breaks bread,
The soul keeps its heart and continues to pray,
Until the day the heart converted the soul to grey,
Pain unfolded, for the human they held, was now dead.

Scratching at my Soul

It had to be a dream
But so, so real
It did seem

And it did feel
Like everything in sight
Had it's own appeal

Oh how bright
Was the black
Of the night

Then the attack
From all around
Front and back

Unbelievable was the sound
Of pain's own cry
Even through the ground

Fight or fly
No! run and hide
Stay and die

Not hard to decide
It seems to be everywhere
Escape I tried

It didn't care
I could feel the cold, dead touch
Through my soul it did tear

The pain was much
More than anything
Unbearable or such

Fearing what it will bring
Resist, fight and pray
To the one and only King

I am not prey
Never have been
And not that day

Reader Rabbit

Reader Rabbit

Toward the end of a book,
we tend to speed up, 
in anticipation of the climatic finish. 

Yet sadly, 
the build-up...
was the part we savored, 
on the perfect path
to the right...
and everlasting

The beginning.

God knows your end;
     Death* comes announced...
          How will last breath find you?

          God offers love...
     ...Eternal life’s gift
Accept or reject it?

*2Timothy 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

International Funeral

God, in the gloaming, splits the horizon with lightning,
assembly of angels of every nation and tongue ~
lifting coffins of great numbers of war dead,
military, and civilian men, women, children,
over dusky rolling fields of scarlet poppies,
nations united in sorrows,
in lamentation of humankind,
then, a collective hush,
as nightjars sing the dirge of the universe.

The dance of global pandemic is rampant
Causing harm that one could never dream
People to be free like birds in tree
Let us pray for the almighty thee.

Young and old shiver with fright
Not knowing what to do is right 
So let god bless us with light
When we fight the virus with all the might.

To see the day once again
Where we are free from sufferings and pain
Living our lives like birds once again
Singing his glory in life’s mountains and plains.

Strong Tears

Because tears are meant
To be a symbol of strength
Even in hard days.

Time Heals All Wounds

In time all wounds heal
It's what you make of it and how you express what is real,

Healing is a process that varies with time
Depending on the situation you may heal on a dime,

But, if you loose a loved one in a sudden death
We must have patience cause only God knows what is best,

And even then time seems to stop
We have to try to move on even through the rain drops,

Life will go on without a doubt
We will never really understand what life is all about,

Just remember time does heal all cuts
Especially the ones that hurt us deep in to our guts,

Have faith in God and you will see
That this is the world he created for you and me.
